Update the existing sofa
Multifunctional furniture like a sofa cum bed is your best bet when it comes to updating the existing furniture. Replace your giant sofa set with a sofa cum bed which can give you the seating during the day and becomes a bed by night.
Cut the clutter at the coffee table
The top of the coffee table doesn’t deserve a pile of newspapers and magazines, instead, it should have a flower vase to make your home efficiently beautiful, as the name says. A multifunctional coffee table with storage can hide all the clutter inside, and such designs also come with tucked-in stool space, which further eliminates the use of extra seating units.
Get entertained at the right eye level

Two in one
A study table cum bookshelf will make the space more practical and less cluttered. An extendable dining table can work brilliantly well to accommodate all your guests.
And a storage bed is a necessity too. Don’t waste all that precious space under your bed. Invest in a sleeper couch and use it as a lounge chair, sofa, or a spare bed when a friend suddenly drops by. Purchase a side table with storage to tuck cords away safely, while you charge your devices.
Avoid bright colours
Furniture that is light-coloured, such as light green and brown, also significantly enhances the impression of a larger space. Whereas, brighter colours make smaller spaces appear smaller.
Let’s not forget the dining
Remember when you have the announced guests at home, and you are left with nothing but making half of the people adjust in other rooms for dinner? An extendable dining table can work brilliantly well in this.
